the obama administration has no plan for next year in the romney view. and secondly, how they took their eye off the ball in the first administration and in looking at health care first and not enough on the jobs side of the equation and i think romney connected with people in saying his first focus is economic growth and job creation, and i think he did a very, very effective job of that last night. stuart: brian gardner, i appreciate you being with us. jobs, taxes, appearance, approach. we've got it. thank you very much indeed. a little earlier this morning, i'm going to the gold report. about 90 seconds early. sorry about that if i have upset your routine, i did want you to see that. gold is getting close to $1800 an ounce. 1,789.60, we're up 9.80 as of this morning. and i want you to check out the latest cover of news week. this is the coverage of news week, can you read it clearly? the democrats' reagan? what? assuming a second term? carol roth and general beala our post debate company and we have business and politics coming for you. newsweek, can you believe that? newsweek is our firs
move forward? this raises the bar for romney and for obama. so i think our next debate is going to be a little more livelier, jon. jon: cory, even big obama supporters like bill maher, bill maher tweeted out during the debate that it looks like president obama doesn't even realize he is showing up here for a job interview. >> well, jon, there is no question about it that mitt romney did a good job of exceeding dramatically low expectations. definitely won the expectations game, right. jon: if he won the debate? that is more than exceeding low expectations, isn't it? >> i think so. >> but here's the point, the point is at end of the day debates about specifics. this was very substantive debate last night. even the president at the end thought it was a very good conversation but i think his strongest point throughout the night when he pointed out, you know, the governor romney's ideas apparently are too good to communicate to the american people. he wants to keep them a secret. doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this tax cut. he doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for
for the next round? >> this wasn't just about performance. the obama folks think it's style and performs and and looking down instead of looking up. last night was about substance. looked at president obama and said you paid for obama-care by cutting $716 billion from medicare. you didn't have to do it. president obama had no answer. mitt romney said president obama you talk about a few tax breaks for the oil and gas industry. you have given much more tax breaks to the alternative energy energy and you have nothing to show for it. president obama just looked at him. at the end of the day barack obama couldn't engage on substance last night. the facts aren't going to get any better between thousand and the next two debates. the alternative energy market is not going to start working in the next two weeks. the obama economic policies aren't going to be working in the effect two weeks. it wasn't about style. it's about substance and obama not being able to stand on his own record. that record is not going to change between now and the next debate. martha: thank you for being with us today.
the obama camp may be panicked enough to unveil some opposition research on romney. >> let's see in the next 24, 48 hours to say we need to turn the page with something new. some other video or some other thing. >> the obama camp had no problem slamming hillary clinton in the 2008 primary, top democrats privately tell me that part of mr. obama's strategy was hold back on the attack because it might look beneath the dig dignity of the office. >> no subject was more hotly contested last night than tax policy. jim angle takes a look at the fact and the fiction behind the claims. >> the two candidates jousted over taxes throughout the debate, romney wants to reduce tax rates by 20% across the board. but says he would keep a definite sit neutral by trimming some of the $1.2 trillion a year in tax deductions. president obama argues there aren't enough deductions that affect only the rich, so romney would have to hit the middle class. >> the only way to meet governor romney's pledge of not reducing the deficit or not adding to the deficit is by burdening middle class families, the average middle cl
for obama in 2008. what are they thinking now after last night's debate? frank luntz up next with the fascinating revelation. right back. i've been a superintendent for 30 some years at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter. >> steve: i love being here in the control room. news by the numbers. $127,000. that's the value of all the jewelry swiped from julianne moore's new york city apartment. the heist happened while the actress was filming a movie in canada. next, one dollar a day. that's how much manhattan teen-agers are paid for cell phone have lays. d -- valets. let's them leave their phones inside while they go to school. $5,600, that's how much virginia car dealership accidentally cut from the price of this chevy suv. but when the customer refused to give it back, they arrested him for stealing. oh, man. brian? >> brian: all ri
in the debates. what is the task or let's just talk about the first debate which is next wednesday. >> so obama i think his task is reasonably clear, just be calm, stay calm, whatever that british slogan we're all repeating now, stay calm and in control. he just has to be calm. and somebody made a good point. he had a pretty bad week in the middle east or two wokes in the middle east but he reacted with calmness. so he sort of gets a pass on really what is sort of a chaotic administration policy. romney is the one with the burden. and so i do think he says, he has to say listen, i haven't been a great candidate but if you elect me there are four organizations i'm going to fix. i am going to fix the tax code -- >> i think romney can remember four. >> it is just too many for people to remember. three, believable. >> okay, do tax code, energy policy and dot political system. or go say hey this guy won't talk about the fiscal cliff, i will cut a deal. i will cut a deal to so we don't go off the fiscal cliff so business can have some confidence that would be the sort of unusual thing i think would be
in america. i want to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. >> obama care is point number one. it is the example number one where he wants to put bureaucrats between you and your doctor, he believes that the government should tell you what kind of insurance you have to have. he believes that government should have a board of people that tell you what kind of care you can receive. my view is we fight for freedom in this country, i do not want an intrusive massive larger debt spending government that crushes the american dream. >> they like to call it obama care, well, let me tell you, i do care. i care about all the young people who are able to stay on their parents' plans now. i care about the seniors who are seeing lower prescription drug costs. i care about folks with pre-existing conditions who can't be denied care now. governor romney has promised that he would overturn obama care on its first day in office. which means -- which means he would kick nearly 7 million young people off their parents' plans. he would make seniors prescription drugs more expensive, yo
the last five weeks. if you elect obama for the next four years, there will be no better than the past four years. i happen to believe that is true, but not very inspiring. it is hard to blame the guy. he wants to get reelected with a pretty narrow cast approach to democratic and independent constituencies. i do not think we will get the kind of framing you would like. i am a little less pessimistic. i do think reality matters. and we will hit a cliff and all kinds of ways. the fed cannot keep printing money and expecting the world to take it or buy treasury notes to fund trillion dollar deficits forever. the economy is slow and going into another dip. i actually think the next president will have a moment between november 7, and i do not know, this summer or fall of 2013 to do a lot. i would bet there is a huge legislative agenda in 2013. i did not really by the gridlock argument. if obama gets reelected, evil have a mandate basically -- he will have a mandate basically the lesser version of bowel- simpson. if romney wins, he will have a mandate for some version of the right and budget, pr
to raise taxes. president obama has plans to raise taxes in this term and the next term. if he does that, he will plunge us off the fiscal cliff to another recession. this is why this choice facing the american people is critical. >> bret: when you hear the obama campaign and all the folks say, and interview after interview say we want specifics of how these loopholes will close and how you will pay for $5 trillion in tax cuts, are we going to hear it tonight? >> i think what you will hear from governor romney is the same thing we heard from president reagan in 1986. in 1986, the last time we undertook substantial tax reform, president reagan or ticklated -- articulated his principles. he laid out the broad guideline and guide him in his negotiation with congress. we did something great for the american people back then. we pushed down rates. that created economic expansion. that is what governor romney wants to do. lower rates across the board. he will reduce the burden on the middle class by allowing them to save and invest tax free. >> bret: in a revenue neutral way. >> for those at t
hours president obama and romney will walk out on this stage behind me in the first of three debates in the next 20 days. tonight's session will be divided in to six 15-minute segments. allotted to topics related to the economy, healthcare and government. tens of millions of americans will be watching. according to the polls, most have already made up their minds. one recent poll says 7% of likely voters are still undecided. they will be the primary targets tonight. as the neigh watches. chief white house correspondent ed henry begins our coverage. >> in the run township the clash that will help decide whether he gets another four years, president obama stayed mum. leaving the heavy lifting yet again today to former president bill clinton in new hampshire, who made the case this is a choice about the next four years. >> the economy is not fixed. i am telling you, nobody can fix this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run. >> reporter: the president made the opposite case in 2009. vowing to get the economy fixed
obama will win the three presidential debates in the next three and a half, four weeks and that governor romney will lose them or at least a third of them asked believe that. romney has the opportunity to overachieve. it's sort of what campaigns want. it seems counter intuitive though you would want voters to have low expectations for you it gives mr. romney an opportunity to not only lay out his case but to pick apart president obama's. the theme will be as we have heard over and over and over again in recent weeks the country can't afford four more years like the last four years. romney wants to do it in a way that shows he is capable, able, has solutions, dodges. so barbs by the president regarding his alleged specificity. people find it difficult to access mr. romney. this will give an opportunity to show people who he really is shep? >> shepard: carl, a new ad out tonight. i wonder if that gives us a hint of what we might hear in this debate. >> it does. mr. romney has been complaining in the recent weeks that the president often misrepresents his position on abortion, the auto bail
powers coming together to figure out what to do next. plus, just two hours to go until the presidential nominees take the stage here and face off for the very first time. after more than a year of speeches and ads, rallies and fundraisers, president obama and governor romney tonight finally square off face-to-face. >> the president will talk about we need to continue to build the economy from the middle class out and things like education and manufacturing. >> governor romney's focus is talking directly to the voters about what his plans are to strengthen the middle class and get this economy back on track. >> shepard: and with millions of undecided voters still out there, the stakes could not be higher. tonight, the home stretch in the race for the white house. plus, it's not just the candidates who are in the hot seats. a closer look at debate moderators and why the pressure is more intense than ever before. and good evening from the university of denver where we are just two hours away from an historic and high stakes showdown. president obama and governor mitt romney facing off here
the obama staff and surrogates in their appearances next 20 four hours push this back being a choice between two people. mitt romney moved it back more referendum on the president. we have the official obama spin. this is the literal party line, what they're going to be saying in their tv appearances in the morning. they say mitt romney continues to fail the details test. tax cuts, replacing obama, replacing wall street reform. double down on the big economic ideas that crashed the economy. what is missing from that line? anything about the president. just about mitt romney. >> that is consistent what we heard from governor o'malley just now saying i was listening very closely for new idea on job creation. i didn't hear one. we're hearing those talking points already. >> undoubtedly the coverage next couple days will be interesting. we head into a vice-presidential aol debate. the last vice-presidential debate got more viewers than the presidential debates largely because of sarah palin. >> call me joe. owe biden. >> and i think this will be another very well-watched and spirited debate. two
the next four years. it's very striking in the obama team announcement his campaign the last five weeks which is what, the last four years something like that. >> if you elect obama the next four years than the last four years. that's true and for reelecting obama but it's not an inspiring forward-looking slogan about what mitt romney will do. obama has cast his lot and it's hard to blame the guy that wants to get pretty elected -- reelected with a approach to the democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about romney is just bush and all that. i don't think we are going to get the training he would like. i love little less pessimistic that means they can't govern effectively. i do think reality matters as we have been saying. we are going to hit a cliff in all kind of ways. but it is a real cliff in 2013 in the sense that you cannot sustain these obviously for too long they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or why treasury forever. the economy is slow and may be going into another dip. the foreign policy challenges. i think the next presiden
for their only debate next week. president obama and mitt romney head back out to the campaign trail today where the president making stops in colorado and wisconsin. romney will travel to virginia. let's get a bit more into this debate. joining us now for more is a republican strategist and former mccain/palin aide. and a democratic strategist and former senior adviser to the presidential campaignses of john e he hedwards and wesley clark. let's start with you. by all accounts this was going to be the debate where mitt romney would be the strongest on the issues around the economy because really the president's coming from the back foot on these issues in what have been difficult few years of his leadership so far. so he couldn't fail on do well surely. >> all accounts going in did not add up to what actually happened. the expectations for mitt romney were high, but he exceeded all those expectations. this was the best debate of his political life going back to his first campaign in '94, the gubernatorial campaigns in massachusetts and all the debates they had in the primaries. this was a great
in history. host:next is ann, a president obama supporter. caller: good morning. i think exactly the opposite. i think mitt romney looked almost manic and his appearance. i have never seen him flailing his arms around. he told so many lies. he completely turned around all of the things he has been running on the for the past 18 months. he even through the tax policy away. he just changed everything. it was really unbelievable. i think many people looked at him being more aggressive. that is what they were rewarding. once people started paying attention to exactly why he said, they would see that his -- that he told so many lies and distorted what he was trying to say. i think the president look very presidential. he was not aggressive. he explained exactly what he wanted to say. i thought the whole purpose of the debate was for each one to explain what their policy was. romney just completely changed. that is what was so -- i guess it is not so surprising, because that is what he has done is flip-floping. i hope the president would get an ad out or they show what he has been saying and what h
saying that president obama labeled it terror the next day? >> well, it didn't sound from that context as if he labeled it as terrorism the next day, anderson. but it does seem credible to me that the white house is sharing with the public what it knows when it knows. it's very difficult to get good information immediately and as this issue becomes clearer, i think the white house has made a credible effort to tell the americans what it, in fact, knows about it. >> ari fleischer, what about that? david axelrod is also saying look, an investigation, you have to be prudent, you're president of the united states, you can't jump to conclusions. >> i have a fair amount of sympathy. i stood on that podium at the white house in the case of attacks on our country. you have to wait until you have all the facts to speak. but in this case, i think there was a willful pattern in this administration of downplaying terrorist attacks against our country. it was done with the underwear bombern the airplane. it was done with the times square bomber, and done in benghazi, attributing the violence to the

obama's descrafterous debate performance on the altitude. my next guest says something was definitely up. but bob woodward believes he may have received troubling news that day. and according to the washington examiner, there is a major donor scandal story that the obama campaign is trying to suppress, involving overseas campaign contributions. joining me, the author of the new york times best seller, the price of politic, bob woodward is back. before we get into that part of the story, saw i this performance was so bad that it's worth explaining. i found your comments very interesting? >> well, two and-a-half months ago, i interviewed obottom in the oval office for an hour and-a-half. went through very tough questions about his negotiations with the republicans on the financial and debt and deficit issues. and he was tuned in. he answered, he gave his side. he gave his defense. the obama -- the other night in this debate -- it was almost like there were two channels going in his mind, one on the debate and answering in the way he did, which just didn't fit together. and then when he was

romney and barack obama. we're also taking your phone calls. illinois, vicki is up next on our independent live caller:. good morning, i have a different question. i would like to say that i voted for president obama. a lot of people are misconstrued about what mormon is. they think of donny and marie osmond. i have been upset a little bit about people wanting to make this a race issue. i have a granddaughter where her mother is white and her father is black. we are all americans. this makes me upset that we need to tell these people to quit and stop with the race card. guest: there's a question as to what the race card is in this case. obama was born to a mixed household and raised by a white mother. that has always been part of what he has been publicly. in that sense, he represents the absence of racial issues in politics. host: let's take a look at an excerpt from the book -- guest: i think that's about right. people are watching if the candidate is going to win or gain. they are hoping that mitt romney has that special edge, the republicans, and if you are for obama, you h
with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in
of this. i think valerie jarrett sat next to mrs. obama during the debate tells the president every day, you're the greatest orator in the history of language. i think if you hear that long enough you don't think you have to prepare for the debate and have contempt for anyone who would even dare challenge you for your job. bill: larry sabato, the university of virginia, right, he said last night that it is clear he blew off all of hess practice sessions. >> right. bill: and he said there is evidence to prove that. but it doesn't just stop with folks like al gore. ed schultz was on "the today show.". savannah guthrie asked him specifically what was going on. here he what he said. so many lies coming across the stage and so many inaccuracies, it was hard for the president to comprehend it and decide which one he wanted to attack first. i really believe that because the president's personality is bookish, likes to explain things. will not put something in two or three or four like thing and say well, i'm done with it guthrie says, it sound like you're making excuses. he went on to say romn
. caller: good morning. what can president obama or governor romney due to work with the next congress? do think this will lead to a greater assertion of executive authority in the next term? guest: thank you, john. i did not know i would be facing the toughest questioners. congressional approval is at an all-time low. it is up there with paris hilton and the communist party of russia. i think we need to step back and understand many people in this country see the political system as broken. others -- elizabeth warren -- have spoken house some money have seen the system rigged against them. there is a few that those who dislike government for the past 40 years have a stake in diminishing the reputation of government, of congress. i would argue that we have seen a movement in these last 40 years to debase role of government. callback and read the book on lyndon johnson. the use or abuse of the filibuster has been used or abuse in the last 10 days or three years more than once in the 1960's 197's combined by the republicans. the president has an opportunity to come back if the republicans de
. >> thousands of progressives. >> saying where is that? i do think on the next one, we talk about expectations. mitt romney is this great debater. he buried the president in the first debate. if president obama even does pretty well, if he does start to fight back, you know the press will come along and others will come along and say the president's back. he was unprepared for the first time. i'll be interested to see how long this first debate carries mitt romney. if the president has a good second debate, does it wipe out the first one? i don't know. >> i have a theory why that happened. it wasn't that he didn't have the facts at his command. it was that strategically, they said going in so much, you're here, he's there. there's none of this. there's none of this. when he talks, you don't look at him. when you talk, you don't look at him. you don't even respond to him. he's not there. and that's what translated to the pathetic performance and also what seemed to not have the facts at his hands. i think it was an overarching no-engagement strategy. these were simple facts. these were simple r
